UPDATE: Opponents worry developments will harm city’s culture

EDITOR'S NOTE: In reference to the “irresponsibility” of the Examiner not posting the whole story and adding our own “tilt” to a story to “look one way,” know most assuredly that is not the case — ever. It is the paper’s custom to make available on the free Website only a few graphs of each story, and that is just how the words fell. Should all of that been taken into consideration with the initial post? Perhaps, but the items are designed “to tease” deeper reading and the purchase of our product. The newspaper had no intent whatsoever of taking any position.

The full Examiner story from Tuesday's Bellefontaine City Council meeting is now available below.
